In the first two parts of this Stress In The Modern Age series I went over four of the major stressors that are causing a large number of other stressors ranging from discomfort to completely unmanaegable. Now we get to go into the solutions. Some of these solutions are inconvenient but not as inconvenient as suffering from the spectrum of physical and emotional illnesses that result from excess stress.
There are as many ways to offset stress as there are stressors so be creative. Look at your specific environment and see how stress has found its way in, then chip away at it. It takes time but implement self care that does not involve chemicals to relax. It's never good to use a chemical stressor to remove stress as it keeps the cycle going.
The solution to EMF - Nature & Removal
I often talk about the importance of shutting off Wifi, hard-wiring your tech (ethernet cables for Internet), getting rid of your smart meter, and turning breakers off while you sleep. These are all important and the more unnatural EMF you can remove, the better you will feel. The solution to stress beyond tech removal is nature. I live near the beach and drive past it every day. It is so easy to see the nature around us from our cars. If you want to remove stress from your life you have to make nature a priority. Time spent in water or in the presence of trees is beneficial to stress reduction. The more actual time you can spend the better you will feel. At different times in my life I have found places that are nature-rich and population sparse. I have had some of my best thoughts and realizations in these places. I say this to you as well as myself. Look at how much time you really spend in nature vs indoors in front of a screen. Be honest with yourself and increase the nature time each day.
Replace artificial LED lights which are excitatory and pulse the brain and body's stress levels up. Replace them with more natural light: fire light and candles or even salt lamps are way better than what most people are using. The flicker effect mixed with the limited frequency bandwidth of light from screens and LEDs spike the brain and tells alert and awake, aka fight or flight mode. This aids consumerism as it induces a subconscious "need" for things and promotes people to make more purchases (there's a reason screens and lights in stores are blue-excitatory as opposed to orange-calming). I have done talks on light as well as this Light Calibration Blog. Look towards the sunlight (not directly at it) for 5 min, 5 times a day and when the sun goes down, limit your light exposure as much as possible. There is a reason why campfires and candle light create an atmosphere of relaxation, peace, and romance. Those are all things that happen more when you aren't stressed. Florescent/ LED lighting and screens also change the way you process carbs, lowering testosterone (know anyone with low testosterone levels?) in men and disrupts sleep and hormone balance.
Get off all forms of caffeine for 60 days
All forms: coffee, tea, chocolate, soda, energy drinks and everything in between. Why? Caffeine is related to stress as alcohol is related to intoxication. If you are concerned about stress in your life then taking a drug that induces a stress is a bad idea. I have written a few posts on this:
Coffee In the Modern Age and even started a FB Group called: Caffeine-Free Support Group.
Our society is stressed, sleep deprived, and heavily caffeinated. Unfortunately so few people are 100% caffeine-free that it is difficult to get any kind of realistic measure of the real effects of caffeine on larger scales. Since I have quit this drug I have been amazed to see just how prevalent it is and how much "health" people promote it. If I told you I want to sell you a toxic stimulant that will reduce the blood flow to your brain, spike stress hormones, and ruin your sleep there is no way you would think it would make you "bullet proof." No one with anxiety should be on caffeine and one cup (which is the size of a tea cup not a 16oz) is enough to cause major problems. I didn't know the seriousness of it until I got off. Try it, you can always go back.
Quit the gym and switch to lower intensity and more restorative motion in nature especially if you are over the age of 35. I'm all for being strong but going to an LED lit/ Wifi room jacked on caffeine to over train is one of the worst things you can do for your health. Whatever you do, at the very least do it outside in natural sunlight.
As a society we are far too concerned with the appearance of things. It would be far better for you to move in nature and not be shredded than to constantly injure yourself or even worse inject testosterone or other growth hormone steroids just to give the illusion of health. Let your nervous system heal and be healthy. Get in the sun and breathe. I think doing workouts in nature will give you very different results and improve your health. I have been that guy at the gym doing everything wrong just to build muscle and look the part. I feel much better not constantly tearing my body down as much as I can just so I can go tear it down again the next day.
Here are some practical tips beside the ones mentioned above that I have found to be helpful.
Take magnesium baths - Stress and caffeine deplete magnesium at rapid rates so be sure to build your relaxation reserves back up by taking magnesium baths 2-3x a week. Turn on some relaxing music and enjoy.
Take cat naps - In my own life getting off caffeine and reducing stress has caused me to embrace the quick power nap. It is amazing how important it is to take 10 minutes and let yourself rest mid day. If you do go caffeine-free, your nervous system is healing and repairing, so support it.
Eat real, clean food - In the past I have been so focused on extremes which in part was due to my inability to sit still and relax. So instead of doing extreme cleansing or being too focused on my weight, I have been trying to stick to a clean but satisfying diet that lets me have food that isn't processed and will support my system and repair process.
Listen to relaxing music - I was a punk rocker when I was younger. I still love so many of the old bands but if I want to stay in a calm and relaxed place I have to make sure the music I'm listening to matches the head space I want to be in. I have found classical good for this or even no music at all and instead enjoy tuning into the sounds in nature: birds, wind, neighborhood dogs barking, the stream down the street, ect.
Last but not least.....Don't take on other people's stress and drama
Life can be boring. Having just had a birthday I see how life goes by fast. People are often bored and stressed. The combination often results in stories and drama that exist in the mind as a form of entertainment. The goal of drama is often to validate its creation by getting others to participate in it.
Do not do this. Let others be as stressed as they want to be. Let people feel any way they want. Stay true to you. Even though drama might be appealing to engage excitatory systems that make people frantic and entertained, it often results in a destructive crash. The more you embrace the calm and remove stress from your life the more others will try to pull you back into it.
Stress in the modern age can be destructive. Make stress removal a priority today.
Welcome to Part 2
In the last Blog I explained why EMF and artificial lights are stressors with potential to make other stressors in your life less manageable. I'm going to continue with a stressor I'm currently withdrawing from, which has been one of the most impactful stressors and one that virtually everyone in our society is on. I'm talking about caffeine.
A few weeks ago I gave up coffee and shortly after all forms of caffeine including my beloved chocolate addiction. I am a true caffeine addict so I know what you're thinking as you read this. The fact is no one with stress, anxiety, or sleep issues should be consuming this drug as it contributes to those issues. In the same way no one drinking a beer should be surprised if they aren't sober, no one consuming caffeine should be surprised about anxiety, sleep issues, and so many more negative effects. Just one cup of coffee is enough to keep measurably reduced blood flow to your brain. Caffeine in any form spikes the sympathetic nervous system, putting you in fight or flight mode. This prevents healing, weight loss, and prolonged stress. I finally realized I have struggled with anxiety for 20 years and have also been on some form of caffeine for 20 years. This means my nervous system has been taxed by a drug this entire time. I now have no idea what my adult life is like without that constant flood of stress hormones running through me. It's not enough to go off for a day. I need at least 60 days 100% caffeine free to even have a baseline (I don't like citing sources but there's a lot of great data and info on the specifics of caffeine in the book Caffeine Blues). It will certainly take my nervous system a long time to recover from being taxed for so long, even if the drug is out of my system. I realize the vast majority of our society is on this drug so it is almost impossible to get a baseline. It takes the body weeks to months to repair fully and most studies on caffeine (done by coffee drinkers for coffee sellers) look at a person on coffee one day and off the next which is no better than testing someone on heroin and someone withdrawing from heroin. Better to compare a person not on heroin at all to really see. Coffee, tea, chocolate, soda and on and on. Who is really off this stress drug?
Take a close look at anyone, especially anyone in alternative health claiming to be bulletproof. Perhaps they just found a legal drug to get you hooked on. It's good for business and bad for your health. I'm sure you will here more about this from me as I have found that my few weeks off caffeine has been one of the most humbling and beneficial steps in health I have ever taken. This worsens the effects of EMF and artificial light (mentioned in part 1) and leads me directly into the fourth stressor I'm going to talk about: over-training.
I've been that guy. The guy at the gym with the shaker cup filled with some caffeine-filled, neon-colored drink lifting way too hard just to feel strong. With my skin exposed to florescent lights, surrounded by tech devices, all in the name of health. This is the culmination of all 4 stressors. Overtraining in general is a problem. It is fun to feel strong but we often push ourselves to exhaustion piling on a massive amount of stress on an already stressed body. I'm not saying to stop exercising but I will say If you are in the longevity phase of life (35+ years old) then it would be wise to shift from growth to longevity by doing far less aggressive wear and tear on the body. I see people pushing themselves so hard and not loosing weight. They seem to look worse and worse and have a sympathetic-dominant nervous system. They never recover, chronically adding to an already stressed life. What's even worse is caffeine is a constrictor and lifters are trying to increase blood flow. When you mix caffeine with substances that dilate the body has a very tough time since it can't do both at the same time. I believe over training, and caffeine are intimately connected. I did this for a prolonged period of time, learn from my mistakes. If you want to look good and lose weight or build muscle, engage the repair and restore mechanisms of your body and know that caffeine consumption will not allow for this.
Remember that health is contingent upon the body's ability to repair itself. The higher the stress, the lower the charge meaning the less power the body has to regenerate itself. There are countless stressors in this life. Some are unavoidable while others are voluntary. Remove what you can and the ones that remain will be more manageable. I call this margin. As your margin increases, so does your health. No one pushing a substance like caffeine that clearly pulls you out of rest and repair wants you to be healthy. These are hard truths but if you go into your doctor's office for anxiety or sleeplessness and find a cup of coffee under LED lighting waiting for you to just be sold some drugs, you may want to reconsider your strategy. Very few people are willing to look at EMF, tech, caffeine and excessive exercise as problems. Guys, if you're overly stressed your testosterone will be low. Women, if your worried about wrinkles no amount of collagen in your coffee will stop the caffeine in the coffee from disrupting skin cell repair any more than adding collagen to a beer will keep you looking good.
If this blog is stressing you out, stay tuned. Part 3 will have some solutions to the 4 stressors that I have covered in this blog series.
Stress is a major factor in illness. This seems to be commonly agreed upon but not commonly dealt with. I say this because I have been on a healing path for years but feel like I am just starting to finally tap into the removal of stress. When I say stress I mean anything that taxes the body or puts it in the fight or flight state engaging the sympathetic nervous system. It is important to note that stress in short bursts can be good (eustress). What I am referring to is long-term stress that keeps your body from entering into the restoration process.
There are stressors everywhere in the modern world and everyone is different so what I'm going to point out are the factors that have impacted me that I did not know about in the past. Addressing these stressors will make traffic or spilling your breakfast on your clothes on the way out the door more bearable. The more you remove stress from your life, the more manageable remaining stress will be. I don't know if there is anything more important for your health than removing stress. This ties directly into my recent blog Sleep In The Modern Age Along with many other past blogs.
I'm going to target 4 stressors that stick out to me most. Sure, eating clean, stop smoking/drinking and any number of others could have made my list but these are the ones I feel have the biggest bang for their buck and are most often overlooked.
In the image above you see a person lets call him Sam. Our friend Sam is 40 and has been feeling out of shape so he started the day early with a pre-workout drink (full of caffeine) and heads to the gym for some heavy lifting (under junk LED lights). He pushes himself super hard and is running late. Off to work where he will be sitting for extended periods. He is now over trained, drinking more coffee in an effort to be "bulletproof", sitting and staring at a blue lit screen with is wifi phone in his pocket, his cordless mouse, his wireless laptop. Are you starting to see the picture?
4 causes of stress to look at:
All 4 of these will steer the sympathetic nervous system (SNS) off course, resulting in Sam's health to be diminished overall. I'm not going to dive too deep into the SNS but when you are in a fight or flight state for prolonged periods, good luck avoiding illness, loosing weight or having a good mental /emotional life or relationships. The overuse of the sympathetic system causes a magnesium deficiency that in turn causes many more problems in the body. Magnesium is key for relaxation and does hundreds of functions in the body. The more stress the faster you burn magnesium.
Electro-magnetic frequencies from our tech are stressing our cells to the max. Anyone who knows me knows I'm focused on telling the EMF story but outside of just being bad for the functions of your cells I'm proposing that EMF may be a primary reason you overreact or have a bad temper. We may not feel the effects of EMF directly since it's sub-sensory, but the constant bombardment of frequencies from tech is higher than ever and is only going to get worse as our addiction to tech increases. We have convenience from our "smart" tech but this is dissonance to the harmonic frequencies of our bodies that are also electro-magnetic. Just go to Health Blog Index if you're new to the blog. There is a lot of good information on EMF there. The take-away is to remember that the tech environment is adding to stress in a major way meaning that it is that much more important that you get the controllable factors under control.
Fake Light -
This one goes along with EMF as light is a frequency generated by electro-magnetics. It stands apart in the sense that we use artificial light so often (day & night). Artificial lights are changing all the time and getting worse as technology becomes "greener" (stripping more frequency out to increase efficiency, harming you more). Incandescent bulbs vs. LED is a good example. Most street and traffic lights are LED and now even new cars have them. I pay a lot of attention to my light environment and if you are concerned with stress you should too. Remember that the light from our tech is excitatory....it is a literal stressor that triggers the dopamine channels in your brain and engages the stress mechanisms directly through the eye.
Get a pair of blue blockers from The Store to help protect yourself.
Here is a brief video on light.
I'm not done, stay tuned for Part 2 where I will have some solutions. Until then talk a deep breath and go for a walk in the sunshine.
Over two years ago, out of desperation, I shifted my focus away from the traditional ideas being pushed in health like nutrition and chemicals to a more quantum perspective. At the time my heart was beating out of time with my body, I was terrified and many other aspects of my heath were getting worse. I was doing everything "right". I was spending every penny I had on trying to figure out my situation. I was also sleeping on a wall with 5 smart meters on the other side of it. Once I realized the dangers of this I quickly moved and purchased a Magnetico Sleep Pad.
This started me down the path of quantum health: asking where does chemistry come from. I soon realized electromagnetics is the real source of life both in my body and everywhere else. The beginning of this site before I started the blog or really built the content was this doc which can be found on the Health Resources page. I have updated it slightly as I have learned a massive amount of info since then. I hope this helps to redefine some words for you. Please share any questions or comments you may have.
Each person should alter their protocols based on their specific environment
(Example a person in a city is different than a person that is not etc.)
It is important to note that in no way negates bio-chemistry, it actually fulfills it. This is the flip side of the same coin. Bio-chemistry tends to be the thing we focus on but we also need to look at what is behind it at what powers it. Many of these topics can be very complex and my goal is to simplify them for better basic understanding. This is just the start of my potential explanation.
People often say they "need more energy" or "that person has good energy" ect. They are referring to actual measurable electrical current in the body.
Realize the desire for energy is not chemical, it is electrical (electro-magnetic) and a person with good energy literally contains more light than most others.
Life = light/energy expressed through a vessel (body)
Light = energy / information / frequency /time
Water = The electrical conductor within a cell created throughout the electron chain transfer process.
Magnetism = Increases the charge of electrons (unidirectional) in line with the earth's magnetosphere (a traditional bi-polar magnetic field will pull energy from one place and send it to another and has an acupuncture effect).
Electrons = sub-atomic: A particle" that converts itself into the elements through complexity arrangements with other electrons and density shifts. They are electromagnetic and express a frequency called quanta (negatively charged).
Mitochondria = The powerhouse or engine of the cell where electron transfer takes place.
DHA = Converts sunlight to DC electric current and back to light. It is the most concentrated in the eye and then the brain and cells.
Exercise = Creates charge through the piezo-electric effect that bio-feeds back to the brain.
Sleep = When the body emits a fluctuating frequency to the tissues of the body to tell the new cells what to become (aka healing).
Food = Substances that insert electrons of different types (light information) into the gut surfaces. One of three inputs (gut, eye, skin) that tell your body about the environment you are in.
Addiction = The search for additional charge.
Biology/chemical reactions = (example digestion) Flow from these things into complexity that goes far beyond this document. This is intended to be the foundational understanding of health as energy and energy as light/ information/ electromagnetism.
Note- Our bodies use DC (direct current) and work with unidirectional magnetism (in line with the earths natural magnetic field). Wall plugs and technology that's plugged into the grid are set to 60 htz AC (alternating current) and are dissonant with your body's DC. An example of why this is a problem is the flicker effect from a florescent light. It is flickering faster than your eye can see but your brain must still process the switch that is happening 60 times per second. This is a stressor.
3 Primary Surfaces – to receive light:
Probiotics = Express light in the gut where sunlight is not present and interact with the light expressed from food.
Fluoride = Blocks the semi-conduction of water.
Heavy Metals = (unhealthy transition metals) - Alter the charge and communication of the cell and have a positive charge.
What is a person = Light filled, electromagnetic receiver/ grounder/ transmitter. We are essentially nature's mobile bio-tech.
Love - Positive human interaction/ physical interaction via electron exchange/ sharing light.
Spoken word – Frequency from sound that communicates to the tissues of the body.
Toxins = Positively charged particles that enter the cell when the sodium potassium pump on the cell wall is not charged. They enter through the calcium channel that is opened as a backup mechanism to keep the cell wall charge balanced, causing calcification over time.
nnEMF = Non-native electromagnetic frequencies: Frequency distractions that can enter the body and act as a microwave that dehydrates the cells from the inside out. They cause dissonance within the frequency communications of the body, leading to all sorts of mitochondrial diseases.
EMF = Natural electromagnetic frequencies which are emitted from the electrons and in turn the mitochondria, the cell, the organs and us. The sun also emits EMF which powers all life on the planet from the outside.
Inflammation = A positive charge imbalance in the body that results in chaos/illness/time mismatch of hormones and chemicals.
Ways to lose electrons:
-electromagnetic / blue light / frequency distortion /NNEMF
Goal of health:
-To retain light, gain more electrons than you loose, and increase charge.
Ways to Increase Quantum Health
Light - Get more full spectrum natural light from the sun in appropriate doses.
Water - Drink non-fluoridated water and eat fat for intracellular water creation.
Magnetism - Have higher charge on the electrons that you have (Magnetico Sleep Pad).
Electrons - Preserve and get more electrons. Ways to get electrons:
-food (healthy fats contain 147atp vs glucose 36atp - this is the simple reason to use fats as fuel)
Mitochondria - Anything that increases the function of mitochondria will boost electron transfer and increase energy in the body.
DHA - Consume high amounts of fish/seafood for increased conversion of sunlight.
Exercise - Use motion to engage the piezoelectric effect.
Sleep – Guard your eye clock, rest with the moon, wake with the sun.
Avoid stressors, toxins, nnEMF.
The end goal is to restore the DNA and increase life. We evolved in nature so our bodies know its frequencies but our technology is distorting the frequencies that our body uses to communicate with itself and the environment.
People are not sleeping and as a result they are not healing. The modern world is making it harder than ever to sleep. You might think it's stress making your mind race and your ears ring at night. In a sense it is true, but is more likely a result of the stressors you can't see that are relatively new to our environment.
There are a million reasons why people aren't sleeping but here are some big categories to look at:
-Tech (wifi) and non-native EMF
I was Light -
The modern tech light environment is telling us to wake up because it is largely excitatory blue light. Street lamps, home lighting, business lighting, and even cars now use predominantly LED lighting with stripped frequency for higher efficiency. The cost of higher efficiency is damage to our biology. We are constantly in front of cell phone, computer, and TV screens but don't seem to realize that light is information as far as our biology is concerned. I have done numerous blogs and talks about light so please check those out.
Tech is another major theme of this site. It is so very difficult to get people to understand what frequencies really are, how they affect us, and how the amount of exposure has grown exponentially. All non-native (unnatural) electromagnetic frequencies (nnEMF) have an effect on or natural frequencies. Our natural frequencies are most active as we sleep in order for our cells to repair. The process of frequency (information) that's expressed over a spectrum to our dividing cells requires a lot of power or charge. So much that we can't be moving around during this process...and this is a major reason why we sleep. All "smart" tech or wireless tech, smart meters, cell phones, wifi, and on and on are affecting us in ways we can't imagine. I was just talking with a client who is receptive to the idea that EMF pollution is an issue and she asked about the signals we are exposed to. I told her to go to the wifi section of her computer and see how many signals her computer (receiver) is picking up. Her jaw dropped as it had not occurred to her that she is being bombarded with all those signals 24 hours a day. Don't get overwhelmed, just allow that feeling to motivate change. The worse the tech environment is, the more we have to do right which is why I'm writing this to you now.
Caffeine - I did a blog about coffee about 2 weeks ago. I since ended my love affair with chocolate and am now 100% caffeine free. In my blog post I explained why caffeine in the modern world has a very different effect than it once did, even just 10 years ago. I have shared my caffeine-free experience with several others and it is amazing how many "I only have one cup" or "I just drink black tea" comments I get as an excuse to continue. It takes weeks for the blood flow to return to normal after just one cup of coffee. Go off 100% of caffeine for a month and you'll be amazed at the withdrawal symptoms you experience. No one with sleep or anxiety issues should be on caffeine.
This is a hormone and when you take it you won't make it internally. If you are taking melatonin please consider going off. If you are on caffeine and on melatonin, this will create a snowball effect of problems down the road. Supplementation shouldn't be taken so lightly as it impedes your body's natural ability to produce what is needed in real time.
Although it may help you initially fall asleep, any form of THC keeps you from getting into the deeper states of sleep. It can cause major issues to your REM. If you regularly take THC try going off and start a dream journal. I'm confident you will see what I mean after 3-4 weeks of consistency.
Any form of alcohol (yes, wine too) is bad news for sleep. The effects of this drug do damage on so many levels especially in the modern tech world we live in. I don't think I need to embellish much here as the effects of alcohol are pretty well established and known at this point.
If you want to experience your true sleep potential, get off all these substances 100% for at least a month.
Low charge -
So many things including all forms of prolonged stress and aging reduce the body's charge. The simplest explanation of aging I can think of is reduced charge potential. The best solution for this besides the info above is a 20 gauss Magnetico sleep pad. I have done a number of posts on this as well. They aren't cheap but if people knew the true benefit it has on sleep and overall health, they would find a way. Magnetico offers interest-free financing on 6 payments over 6 months and I can offer you 15% off with my discount code: ROBA. So many of my friends, family, and clients have purchased one and have all been very grateful they did. You can check them out at the link below.
Magnetico Sleep Pad
I had to do a sleep post. I am getting next level sleep in a way I have never known. Here is a list of some of the things I do
I kill the breakers in my bed room at night.
I sleep on a magneticio sleep pad .
I use only candles and salt lamps in the house at night.
I wear blue-tech (blue blocker) glasses when driving or exposed to screens at night.
I am 100% sober from alcohol, THC, caffeine, and any other mind-altering substances.
I use incline bed therapy (raising the head end of the bed up 6")
I keep a lot of indoor plants in my home.
I have no wifi in my home, out Internet is hard-wired.
I turn all devicess and cell phones off or on airplane mode at night.
I am now in the process of putting up a custom bed canopy that will shield me from any EMF signals while I sleep. The pre-made canopies on the market are unfortunately not high quality and I don't vouch for any of them. I got a very specific fabric from Sheilded Healing and had it sewn into a canopy. This is a very unique hack and I am very excited to take my sleep, (which has been really amazing) to the next level. I plan on doing a video and blog post on this as soon asI have it all put together.
Tech does not sleep and if you are wired in it, neither will you. The best way to get healthy is to get truly restorative sleep and unfortunately I think that's a very rare thing these days. Make it a priority. If you need help with your sleep environment or if you know someone who is struggling with sleep, please share this and/or schedule a consult today. I'd love to help.
A few years ago I heard about Incline Bed Therapy (IBT). This involves inclining the bed on a flat plane so the head of the bed is 6" above the foot. Being relatively easy to do and free I figured I'd give it a shot. I went to my local hardware store purchased bed risers to put under the head end of my bed frame. You can use anything that will support the bed (like books, cinder blocks, ect.) but I found the risers to be best since they fit the frame legs.
So what is the purpose of this? The motivation for me came from an explanation on trees. The question is: how do trees defy gravity and get water up the truck with no pump? I live in California and I can look out the window and see palm trees, they have very high branches and a very long trunk.
Trees create a density shift in water at the top. The leaves are convert water to sap and sugars where respiration and light absorption happen. This density shift uses gravity push the saps and sugars down which then pushes the less dense water up the trunk. No pump, just gravity.
I often mention that trees are hard-wired receiver/transmitters of frequency and humans are wireless receiver/transmitters, meaning we can move around (mobile biotech) and trees can't. So I see humans and trees having much more in common than most people think. Humans stand up straight unlike most other animals that walk on all fours. Humans also have respiration at the top where we breathe.
Andrew Fletcher developed Incline Bed Therapy with this in mind. He started testing to see if humans could take the pressure off the heart by using gravity to boost circulation as we sleep. The answer is yes.
I started 2 years ago. it took me about 3 nights to get used to it (I felt I was sliding down at first) and now sleeping flat when I travel is not comfortable for me. Increased circulation has countless benefits to the brain and body by taking pressure off the heart. One point that stood out to me was that many older people end up bed ridden and in this situation the heart pump is taxed as they aren't standing. This may be why many older people end up intuitively sleeping in their recliners. How many people could benefit from this simple and affordable life hack? Keep in mind, motorized or inclined beds that only lift the head end (folding a person at the hips) is not the same thing.
In the modern age, we need to use more common sense. I think of a cup full of water. It's hard to drink if you never tip the cup. I have certainly benefited from IBT over the last couple years. I promote the removal of non-native EMF in your home environment, getting a Magnetico, and IBT as tools for better sleep and overall health. I'd like to thank Andrew Fletcher for figuring this out and promoting it without any financial gain in mind but out of genuine curiosity and a desire to improve the health of others. IBT is most important to share with those that are ill and are spending a lot of time in bed. Remember, the bed needs to be inclined flat not angled like many adjustable beds or recliners (especially adjustable beds that are electric which will cause negative health effects from the electricity they run on).
Make your sleep environment a priority and see the benefits during the day.
I have a number of practical solutions about where to be, what to eat, how to sleep and more on my Resources page. If you do try IBT, commit for at least 6 months as the effects are subtle and can take time. I believe it's well worth it and that the benefits will be profound and I'd love to hear about your experience if you do.
Those aren't my teeth but they could have been. The cause of my illness was right under my nose. This is a story of metal alloys in teeth and its affect on health. I have a long history of health struggles and these struggles revealed to me that dental health has heavy implications and is commonly overlooked.
I was raised in the inner city of Rochester New York, we didn't have much money or understanding of health back then. I was taken from my mother at birth and passed around until I was adopted. My birth mother was not well when she had me and we get our mitochondria (light converters of the cells) from our mother. It's safe to assume I have poor quality mitochondria compared to most and am therefore prone to low charge.
One of the things I remember most from childhood was the dentist. I would get fluoride and metal fillings and I reacted so fast and so violently that I would shake uncontrollably and my parents would often have to pull over on the way home so I could vomit. I became very overweight and depressed. I lacked energy and felt bad. Fast forward to me as an adult in California after having a life of various low charge issues from, obesity to addiction, depression. With good intentions, I went on a vegan diet (a low charge diet if not in an equatorial region with lots of time outside in the sunlight). I was trying to get healthy and read about the dangers of metal in teeth. I went to a dentist get the metal extracted. The dentist drilled them out and I got sick. Very sick. Over the next 3 years I had massive health issues with my brain, heart, kidneys, gut and so many other issues. I found myself divorced after a 10 year marriage and many people who knew me thought I was a hypochondriac. I was blacking out and lucky had a friend crash at my place one night who was able to help me after a particularly bad fall. My brain wasn't working well and I started making preparations for my death as I knew that was coming quick if things continued as they were.
I have always been a very cognitive person and the feeling that my brain couldn't function was unbearable. I couldn't make sense of things and I still have very blurry memories of this time. What had happened? The dentist that drilled the metal out failed to protect me from the exposure. He didn't drill all of the metal out left some of it exposed directly to my nerves and then covered it up with composite fillings, so I had no idea. Off gassing from hot and cold foods and beverages was going directly into my nervous system. I was being poisoned.
I went to a new biological dentist who exposed this unfortunate truth. He asked me "who's trying to kill you?" He safely extracted the remaining metals and from there I began a path of healing that has taken several years. I thought I was going mad when I was sick. "Mad hatter" historically comes from hat makers who went insane. Mercury and other heavy metals were used in the hat making process at the time and was later discovered to be the cause.
In the modern age metal exposure is still bad but far worse is how these deadly toxins interact with wireless frequency. Metals conduct and pick up frequencies just like an antenna. Non-native EMF from tech causes metals to leach more aggressively and has worse effects on low charge people. The more metals from any source we contain, the worse the effect of wireless tech will be. Our tech is depleting our electromagnetic charge so fast that issues that were bad before are now deadly.
So many diseases are rooted in low charge (aka mitochondrial issues). Everything from depression and sleeplessness, to joint pain and gut issues. This blog is about boosting charge first for overall health and then dealing in chemistry second. This is a relatively unique idea since both mainstream and alt health fixated on chemistry and deficiencies. The real deficiency is not raw materials but electromagnetic charge needed to power the repair process.
As always reduce or remove as much wireless tech from your life as possible, especially in your home and sleep environment. Turn off all smart devices and cut breakers at night before bed.
If you have metal fillings in your teeth and you want to get it removed, use a dentist who will:
-Use a dental dam to block the exposure
-Use an air hose over the nose to breath (most of the metal particles in the air from drilling are inhaled straight into the brain)
-Use a vacuum to suck the metals from the mouth and air
-My dentist even opened the window in the office
Learn about charge in connection to toxicity. Here is a short blog post where I explain how some people get toxic and others don't ...One has low charge and the other doesn't.
Get a Magnetico Sleep Pad
Long before I knew anything about the quantum aspects of health I stumbled upon the magnetico. I was still having issues with metal poisoning and Dr. Bonlie who created the magnetico was a dentist who had also been metal posoned. He explained that the only real way to detox a brain (as the cells don't divide) was to use magno-chelation which increases the charge of the cell so the positively charged toxin can be expelled through the blood stream. I had tried every detox I could find including NAC to high dose Vit C. Only when I got the magnetico did I really find relief and over the past few years I have learned everything I can about magnetism to understand how this powerful tool gave me my life back. I share this often with my readers because I know how it works from personal experience.
Dr. Bonlie did testing and found that fillings do not off gas when on a magnetico. Getting metal fillings removed can be dangerous and expensive and if I could pick between removal and getting a magnetico I would make the make the magnetico the priority. It also does many other beneficial things for increased charge and health. In the wifi world we live in the magnetico is a must.

If you have read my story or any of the Addictive Mind Blog, then you know I have struggled with addiction. I was specifically addicted to alcohol, nicotine and caffeine. I am a dopamine junkie. I wrote a blog about Dopamine In The Modern Age.
I stopped drinking and smoking more than eleven years ago. The one thing I've held onto is coffee. It doesn't destroy the body like alcohol or cigarettes. In fact, coffee has some health benefits. Mental alertness, anti-oxidants, even weight loss effects. So many health guys promote and sell coffee. Its effects are often felt right away. Let's face it, coffee is a drug and any bio-hacker who can sell a drug is going to make money. I love coffee, always have. I loved it most with a cigarette. Over the years I have gone off coffee and then slowly got back on. I'm not saying coffee is bad but I will say it is bad for me. I am currently 4 days off coffee and I have a bad headache. I did not want to get up this morning and my motivation was way down. Classic withdrawal symptoms. This time I quit because I was having severe anxiety in the mornings. I was having to eat a lot to offset the caffeine. My sleep last night was very deep and restorative. Anyone with anxiety or sleep issues should strongly consider going off coffee. It can fry you out.
Another reason I went off coffee is because it reduces blood flow to the brain. This is of particular concern to me in the modern tech age. Anything that constricts can cause serious issues to health. We are now surrounded by frequencies from tech that cause brain and heart issues since they are the most mitochondria-dense organs in the body. Any constriction of blood flow can lead to big problems especially if you know that 5G and other powerful Unnatural frequencies alters the size & expression of proteins in the body.
In the modern age, things that where ok in the past are no longer ok. Neurological blood flow reductions will have a much worse effect. Also, if you're adding a bunch of sugar or sweeteners to your coffee I would really encourage you to reconsider as the blood flow reduction along with the effects of sugar can be a very bad combination.
The anxiety piece of the puzzle is huge. Our cells are being bombarded with unnatural frequencies from every angle and this puts them under a massive amount of stress. Tech and wifi is dissonant to the body's natural harmonics. Increased frequency stress paired with the stimulation effects of coffee often push a person over the edge from alert to anxious. This was certainly the case for me.
I'm surprised at how much my sleep has been affected. I sleep really well with my Magnetico but my dreams have been much more vivid since I quit coffee. Our society has lost the ability to sleep. People use melatonin, THC, sleep aid drugs, alcohol and all kinds of other chemicals to try and help the brain engage its sleep state. Our society also drinks a ton of coffee. A poor nights sleep makes you want coffee to help wake you up which can then cause a poor nights sleep. It's a vicious cycle. If you have trouble sleeping try to go caffeine0free for a month and see what happens. It won't be easy at first.
I do intermittent fasting on and off and I found the coffee (which was once a great tool) became a real issue as I would get jittery without food to offset the caffeine. The stimulating effects of coffee can help with weight loss but for me I need less food and in turn cut excess weight without it.
Coffee increases dopamine. This chemical dopamine release can cause issues with conceptual dopamine from good ideas or accomplishing tasks. As a dopamine addict, I love to be in a dopamine state which is why I need to stop the coffee so my dopamine levels can re-balance. Unfortunately, many who are onto how blue light effects dopamine are also coffee pushers. If you struggle with depression and are trying to boost serotonin, reducing spiked dopamine is key.
I don't think coffee is bad but I will say that some of the effects are bad especially as a dopamine-dominant person. Like most things the people who love coffee should have less and the people who have no interest in it may benefit from a cup. If sleep, anxiety, or heart & brain issues are of concern, you may want to give up the coffee or cycle it one day a week.
There is lots to learn as time goes on and the effects of coffee and other drugs becomes more severe. If you haven't made it a priority to break from all drugs to establish a baseline, I highly recommend it. The environment is changing fast, and we ought to change with it if we want to maintain our health and well-being.
Final thought: consider replacing coffee with cacao. It has some caffeine, but is very high in PQQ and Magnesium which supports your mitochondria.
It has now been several days and I'm still off coffee. I have had really bad headaches. My sleep has been much deeper and I'm far less anxious.
It is clear that coffee in a 5G wifi world is bad news. Neuro dehydration, reduced blood flow and increased anxiety on the body. All in combination with the same affects of wifi would lead me to believe that coffee is one of those things that was ok and is gone. If the goal is to prevent Wifi induced heart attacks and strokes then coffee has to go,. Not to mention the dopamine effects. all bad. I'm done with any bullet proof or other bio hacker health types pushing this when the problems are so great in the modern world. I'll keep you posted.
A friendly reminder that your body is smarter than you.....If you don't use it your body stops making it. Muscles take energy to produce so if you stop using your muscles, the body intelligently stops making them. The same is true with your brain.
In a recent conversation I was explaining how taking testosterone in the form of cream or an injection will shut off the production of testosterone in the body. The response to that statement implied that the body was making a mistake. Remember that the body you are in evolved in an environment that no longer exists, one with no inject-able testosterone. The body is intelligent so it never wastes energy. If you take it you won't make it. The body checks how much testosterone it should produce and if there is testosterone present then it does not produce more. This is why tampering with hormones is such a slippery slope down a path with no baseline. Modern society does not realize that the current environment is exactly what would be done in a lab to reduce testosterone and disrupt hormones. Taking hormones in the same environment that reduced hormonal production simply tells the body to stop making whatever is taken.
The wrong question will never provide the correct answer.
Many of our tests are fundamentally flawed. Many people who want to be in ketosis drink powdered ketones and then use urine to test. If a person is not consuming glucose foods and they are still alive then ketosis is in affect. Drinking ketones and then testing for ketones in the urine as excess waste is very silly. Drinking ketones will stop fat loss as the body will use the ketones for fuel instead of tapping into fat to get them.
Another example is vitamin D. This is connected to light and has many functions in the body. If you test low for vitamin D and then supplement vitamin D and retest you will find vitamin D in your system. This does not mean you are better off. It is like thinking that because coffee comes in coffee cups you can just buy a bunch of cups to increase the amount of coffee.
So many of our tests are totally ridiculous but they help us feel a false sense of control, keyword false. Many people in alternative health are very concerned with alkalinity. I call this the alka-lie because your body has different parts different PHs for different functions. If a person says they want to alkalize the body ask them which part. The stomach for example is supposed to be very acidic. Many of the alkaline solutions people take involves putting an alkaline substances directly into the acid bath that is the stomach. Breathing is the key to balancing a persons alkalinity and acidity. This is bad for business because it's free. Ant- acids are just alkaline tablets so if you want alkaline water just put a Tums in it.
I could go on but the truth is that we are far less able to have tests as we would like. Controlled environments are difficult to produce especially because the body is never fixed it is dynamic and always engaging different programs at different times for. The question of when is much more valid in the conversation of tests than we think and reveals that we can make predictions (think in terms of a bell curve) but not absolutes.
Many health practitioners give blanket advice as if it is so easy to tell what a persons issue is. In my experience, everyone finds the problem to be within their specialty. If you have ringing in the ear a chiropractor will likely say you need an adjustment, a naturopath will likely give you a homeopathic, an MD will likely give you a pharmaceutical. Others will muscle test you for this or that, an ENT may schedule a cleaning, your friend may give you an ear candle. Any of those things may help but sound is frequency. Our ears pick up some and not others, but when you are exposed to frequency variations based on unnatural frequencies from technology, they mix with the frequencies your brain puts off and create a ringing. This may be why you have ringing at night and not during the day as your brain puts out its repair frequencies at night.
I am happy to say I'm not a doctor and won't give medical advice, but I do ask questions. My time in alternative health has exposed me to so many people with good intentions that don't know much about deeper levels of health. Many of the solutions promoted are silly and misunderstood at best. I see how nice it would be if muscle testing in the way people often do it was reliable. How nice it would be if there were devices that could fix all our problems. How nice if juice increased electro-magnetic charge. How nice if just putting everyone on a keto diet solved all our problems. The environment we live in (frequency-wise) is completely different than it was even 5 years ago. This blog is all about how tech affects health and tech has changed and continues to change at a rapid rate. Modern tech doesn't sleep so what was true in the past may no longer be true today. Could it be that the vast majority of our problems have everything to do with low electro-magnetic charge and far less to do with the deficiency story that makes alt health so much money?
The reality is it is up to you. Start with your environment and work backwards from there. Ask questions, and never take advice from a person that can't explain what they are doing and why. Why has no one started a muscle testing measure that does not involve human error? Observation alters outcome.
My Brain is for rent. If you want help figuring out the whys and practical solutions to issues you haven't found working solutions to in mainstream or alternative health, I am happy to help. The difference is I don't offer my solutions in a bright, shiny package. I offer simple, straightforward, sobering steps that require real effort and consistency but yield real results.
This is a long story but very important story. Our mitochondria are the engines inside our cells. They create chemical energy called ATP so the end result of the process that goes on within mitochondria powers chemistry. This is why people talking about chemistry and prescribing chemicals and nutrients are limited in their treatments. Most chemical issues may be from poor mitochondria function which can't be treated with chemistry as chemistry is the end product of the mitochondrial process. This is a common mistake; putting the cart before the horse so to speak.
To understand what mitochondria are we first must understand electron chain transfer. Simply put, it's the process that electrons take to convert themselves through density and complexity shifts to create tangible substances, the first of which is water. Water is the conductive battery for charge. charge is the frequency expressed from electricity contained in a magnetic field. This it the story of mitochondria. Mitochondria are light converters.
As you can see in this picture, mitochondria are several levels down the fractal chain. They are often viewed as nothing more than ATP (chemical energy) producers. The reality is, they are little EMF (electro-magnetic frequency devices). Historically our cells engulfed mitochondria to be the power source for us to become the mobile receiver /transmitters that we are now. Electrons make themselves denser by interacting with each other in more complex ways and grouping up. This is why the first element on the periodic tablle is hydrogen and it contains only one electron. It is also why water is so programmable because hydrogen mixes with oxygen to create this quantum battery to conduct electro-magnetic charge.
Here is a diagram of electron chain transfer which is what is happening inside the mitochondria. I encourage you to ignore all the stuff you've never seen and just notice that there are complexes that are steps in the conversion process of light. Also notice the H2O. This is newly created water inside the mitochondria.
Our outer environment and inner environment interact. Light and other frequencies in the environment if unnatural (tech) distort the process of our mitochondria light converters and our power (electro-magnetic charge) declines as a result. As power in the body declines, so does repair and function.
There are ways to boost mitochondrial function and many can be found on The Archive page. Many depend on your specific environment. I hope this blog explains why my opposition to wifi and unnatural tech frequencies is so extreme. It is rare to find health practitioners focusing on mitochondria and even more rare to haver that focus be on electro-magnetic aspects as opposed to the chemicals. NAD and CoQ10 are good examples of what many focus on when they become aware of mitochondria.
Don't fall into this trap. If you take it you won't make it and these are shuttles for electron conversion. If the passenger count ( the number of electrons) is low the body won't build bigger shuttles. Eating more shuttles does not make more passengers.
Nature in its many forms: hot or cold (side note - cold condenses the electron chain transfer in the body for increased internal light when external light is low) are both tools to be used. This is why heat (saunas, infrared) and cold (ice baths, cryotherapy) therapy is popular and can have benefits. Keto diets are also gaining popularity not knowing that the fat is stable hydrogen to create better H2O in the mitochondrial process. DHA in fish is also a way that internal and external light can be amplified in the body.
Guess where your body has the most mitochondria? The heart and the brain. These are the most electro-magnetic parts of the body for this reason. Omega 3's are good for the brain and heart because the Omaga 3 DHA interacts with light and the heart and brain have the most light converters in them. Your senses are a few levels up from your mitochondria. These light converter frequency devices pick up signals. What does your heart tell you or trust your higher knowing; trust your mitochondria....if they are not tuned to distorted frequencies from tech.
We just had Mothers Day. You get your mitochondria from your mother. I believe the bond between a mother and a child has far more to do with mitochondria than anything else. As a person who has never met a biological relative I do not have this type of connection but because I don't have it I can see it in different ways than the subtle ways people who have it do. This bond has to do with frequency exchange from the little EMF devices called mitochondria.
There is much more to the mitochondria story but if you break down the info in this blog I hope you can start to make the connections and see how much of our daily lives can be explained by understanding our light converters, our EMF devices, our mitochondria.
